Half term at Dudley Zoological Gardens is set to be frighteningly good fun for all the family!
Running from Saturday October 26 – Sunday November 3, visitors will be able to follow a pumpkin trail around the 40-acre site, for the chance to win an adoption for one of the zoo’s Egyptian fruit bats.
There’ll be eerie arts and crafts in the spooky farm barn and the chance to design your own pumpkin poster in the Queen Mary Restaurant, where Halloween themed treats will also be served.
At 11.30am and 2.15pm each day visitors can also come face-to-face with creepy critters in the Ghoulish Go Wild! Show.
And for those who dare, hear all about the people who once graced the cobbles of the 11th century Dudley Castle with led ghost walks around the grounds, which forms part of the site’s extended animal talk and feed programme where visitors can learn more about the attraction’s conservation work with the world’s rarest species.
The fun also continues after hours as little monsters are invited to join the zoo’s Halloween children’s parties – but be quick as tickets have nearly sold out…
We only have availability for Tuesday 29th & Wednesday 30th October, when between 5pm – 8pm, families can ride the Ghost Train to the haunted castle courtyard, where there’ll be a children’s show, disco, ghoulish games and crafts in the site’s restaurant. At the end of the evening, all children will receive a goodie bag full of treats!
Tickets for the evening event need to be purchased in advance. CLICK HERE for more details.
